For many years, most of the world's civilizations had believed the earth was flat. It wasn't until the classical period in Greece that many great minds like Aristotle thought to figure out that the world was more like a sphere. It took many centuries for most of the world to accept the fact that the Earth was not flat. A woman named Elizabeth Blount created a flat earth organization in the 19th century which objected to a spherical globe as she found it contradictory to the Bible with passages like Daniel 4:10-11 and Isaiah 11:12. She firmly thought one could not be a Christian, and believe that the earth was round.
